    What to Expect
    This tour combines a stroll through all 3 floor levels of the Great Market Hall, guiding you through a food section, with opportunities for tastings, and a non-food section both of which embody the rich Hungarian heritage and culture that is expressed through foods and artifacts such as embroidery, porcelain, clothing and the arts & crafts.

    You will pick up fresh ingredients for your cooking class and sample Hungarian specialties. The tour is about 90 minutes long.

    After the market tour your host will call a taxi and come over to our apartment, cook the dishes you chose (soup, main course, dessert) and eat together what you have cooked. You will finish around 3 pm.

    I don’t see why not. But I’d email the provider to confirm.
